Quote by Abe Fortas
Needless, heedless, wanton and deliberate injury of the sort inflicted by Life's picture story is not an essential instrument of responsible journalism.
This quote asserts that the intentional and reckless harm caused by sensational news stories is not necessary for responsible journalism. It criticizes the tendency of some media outlets to prioritize shocking or scandalous content over thoughtful and ethical reporting. The quote emphasizes that responsible journalism does not require causing harm or sensationalizing events, and it implies that there should be a focus on accurate and meaningful information rather than just creating attention-grabbing headlines.
You all know the argument from design: everything in the world is made just so that we can manage to live in the world, and if the world was ever so little different, we could not manage to live in it. That is the argument from design. It sometimes takes a rather curious form; for instance, it is argued that rabbits have white tails in order to be easy to shoot. I do not know how rabbits would view that application.
